Restart a Heart

Save a Life: Learn CPR

On Wednesday 16 October 2019, to mark the World-Wide Restart a Heart Day, we will be coordinating the training of thousands of students across secondary schools in Wales. Last year, with the help of secondary schools, staff and volunteers, we were able to train more than 12,000 students in 80 schools across Wales.

If someone suffers a cardiac arrest, their chances of survival double if it happens in front of a bystander who immediately starts CPR before our arrival.
